'Who lost America?' This is actually a pseudo-proposition

Humanity should no longer be entangled with questions of “who lost whom.” We should quickly build a new interactive model based on mutual respect for the other's core interests, and meet each other half way.

US seeks to block continent's potential strategic independence

If the tip of a major power competition is the balance of power, cooperating with China and Russia will raise Europe's strategic position and value to the US. It will eventually help it achieve its goal of strategic independence. Europe is facing a choice.

Why China stays strong in face of 'scold war' by West

China has seen ups and downs over the past several millenniums. Multiple empires have come and gone, but China manages to stay on. There's every reason to believe that the Middle Kingdom will carry on in its own fashion for a long time to come.

Will Japan become Five Eyes' 'sixth eye'?

The “Five Eyes” has a clear target of “containing China”. This is obviously a dilemma for Tokyo. In the end, Japan needs to weigh between the benefits brought by joining the alliance and the losses caused by deteriorating China-Japan relations.

Pompeo alienates Germany, now sows discord in Eastern Europe

“Soft power” as a US asset took decades to build but will be quickly ruined. It is up to China to acquire more soft power by persistently being a more responsible global citizen than the US. Currently, that bar couldn't be much lower.

To China critics, vlogging village life is propaganda

Some Westerners and media disparage Chinese personal content creators, saying they are controlled by the government, largely because they are afraid of the improvement of China's soft power. They probably hope that China could stay backward so that they can always maintain their psychological superiority.

'America First' versus 'China First'

It's not wrong for the US to make slogans like “America First” and “Make America Great Again.” What's wrong is the means it has adopted to realize these goals. “Make America Great Again” cannot be a one-man show. It cannot be separated from cooperative interactions with the world.

Which country is more promising in China-US economic competition?

I believe that if China's list of top-tier companies keeps changing because of new entrants, then our country can continue to move faster and remain competitive against the US.
